Crop Over Central on Nation News is the place to be for everything happening this Crop Over Festival.

It is where the vibe lives.

And we are bringing fresh content, both in print and on our social media channels, to keep you up to date with everything that is happening.

Look out for our In Studio interviews with the artistes, songwriters, producers and other faces of the festival, hosted by entertainment specialist Natanga Smith.

Next week, we will be rolling out interviews with 2018 Party Monarch Mikey, Joaquin, Faith, Maloneyy, fete specialist Mara Rose, who is now on stage, and many others.

“We at The Nation are very excited about this year’s Crop Over coverage,” said Executive Editor Carol Martindale.

‘”We are going to be doing things a lot differently this year with our newspapers as well as our social media platforms. We will have more videos and features dedicated to Crop Over and we are going to be reliving Crop Over of old, bringing to life some of those who made a significant contribution to the festival.

Join us on our website www.nationnews.com, on our social media channels Facebook (The Nation Barbados), Instagram (Nation246), Twitter (Nation Barbados) and YouTube (NationNews Barbados).

Look for our team on site and online today as the festival gets underway with the First Citizens Crop Over Launch And Ceremonial Delivery Of The Last Canes in Speightstown, St Peter. (PR)
